Help With Dough

7 posts in this topic

I have now tried twice to make dough from gluten-free flour. Both times it has ended up in disaster, being miserably sticky. I have put extra flour on the outside. I tried rolling with the dough between wax paper. I have ended up completely frustrated and about in tears both times. Any tips?

What was the dough for? If you are trying to roll it out like pizza dough - put a layer of plastic wrap on the counter or another pizza pan. then put another piece on top of the dough and roll out. You can peel the plastic wrap off the top and flip it onto the pizza pan then remove the bottom pan or cookie sheet & pull the bottom plastic off.

gluten-free dough is sticky

What were we trying to make here, and what was the ingredients ? Got a link to the recipe ?

If you are making a pizza dough, I highly recommend the Chebe, a tapioca based mix to which one adds egg and grated cheese, oil, and just a bit of water, which can be actually handled somewhat like a real "dough" if you oil your hands first and oil the pizza pan, then sprinkle a bit of gluten free flour (such as corn meal or amaranth) on the oiled pan.

If it is pie dough, it sounds like there was too much water compared to the necessary fat in the dough, and that it needed to have a little fat (such as oil) and more flour added to it, mixed real well, then refrigerated, and be chilled, before you attempted to play with it. Don't roll it between the wax paper until you get to where you can touch it with your hands and it doesn't stick. Gluten free pie doughs are a ##### <_<:angry: sometimes. Each type of gluten free flour has different characteristics, and many times recipe substitutions will behave differently. :rolleyes: I made a recipe last year out of what was supposed to be a foolproof recipe out of ingredients I had, and it still came out "meh." Turns out you must purchase the custom "special" single ingredient brand of flour, which was not specified. <_<

If it was bread dough - typically that is wet & sticky, unless, again, you're using a Chebe or a modified Chebe based mix.

It was pizza dough, but from a Bob's Red Mill mix. I'll order the Chebe to try next time.

Thanks for the tips!

Chebe is still sticky. I do the plastic wrap trick with it too.

I am happy to report that round 3 vs. gluten-free dough I WON! I have cinnamon rolls ready to go into the oven. The triick this time seemed to be parchment paper (I had used wax last night). Or, it could have been the recipe (I used the Pamela's flour blend and the recipe on the back of the bag). Either way, they are resting on a well greased sheet waiting to be baked. Hopefully they'll turn out tasty!

Parchment paper is far easier to work with than plastic wrap. I have a few killer pizza dough recipes that you roll out (i.e. not sticky) if you are interested. One of the things I missed most with baking was rolling out dough rather than plop it or pour it into a pan. I'm a scratch baker but am curious to see how the Pamela's blend worked out. What is in the blend?

Good luck on the cinnamon rolls!

    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I know this is not funny for you guys, but I had to laugh about how all of those family members simply ignored your well meant advice. That is definitely head in the sand syndrome. I have tried for a long time to find the connection between autoimmune diseases and my health. With this celiac diagnosis I have finally found it. All of the puzzle pieces are in place for sure and it is going to be my mission to do the best possible in order to get healthy again.   What a sneaky disease this is and to think that none of my family members never were diagnosed, despite the fact that both have been in doctor's care all of their lives. It really goes to show that most medical doctors simply seem to completely disconnect nutrition with health.   I am scared to give that advice to people when I see them suffering from specific diseases. But there are people that I would like to help if I can. Scared to make those suggestions, because so many times negative reactions follow and all I meant to do was to help that person.
    • There are definitely things you can do to make it easier on yourself. But all of my ideas seem to cost money and involve cooking. But I'll give it a shot anyway in case you haven't already thought of it. I would buy a small chest freezer and put gluten-free foods in it. Canyon bakehouse sells their fantastic bread and bagels right on their website. You can just buy a case of it. Then if you ever get in the mood for a sandwich or bagel the bread's right there frozen in your chest freezer. If you get invited to somebody's house for dinner find out what their cooking and make your own similar version of it. So for Easter I would make ham, potatoes and broccoli and bring that with me. So when everybody else is eating a fantastic Easter dinner I'm also eating a fantastic Easter dinner. I have other food issues and before celiac I was invited to a friend's wedding. I wasn't going to be able to eat the food they were serving so I made similar food at home. They were serving lamb, ham, vegetables, potatoes. So I brought ham, corn and potatoes with me and heated it up when everybody was going to the buffet to get their food. So when everybody else was pigging out on this great wedding dinner I was also pigging out on a great dinner. And nobody would have noticed if they didn't try. Sometimes you just get in the mood to have a frozen dinner and just don't feel like cooking something. There's two ways you can go about this. I happen to be addicted to Udi's chicken Florentine and think that their broccoli kale lasagna is very good as well. So I'd stock up on that in that chest freezer. glutenfreemall.com has tons of stuff. On Sunday you can make a weeks worth of food and freeze a lot of it in individual portions. After a few weeks you will have several different meals in the chest freezer that you made at home. You can eat those on weeknights when you're too busy to cook. In my family Friday night was always eat out fast food night. McDonald's, Burger King, pizza, fried chicken. So for pizza my plan is to purchase Etalia New York style pizza crusts. Purchase some Escalon six in one crushed tomatoes and freeze in individual portions. Buy some Grande 50/50 mozzarella cheese and freeze in individual portions as well. If on Friday night if I am in the mood for pizza I'll just grab a crust, a portion of sauce and a portion of cheese from the chest freezer and make myself pizza in under 15 minutes. When I get invited to a barbecue I bring loaded potato skins or batter fried chicken wings. Everybody loves them as do I. I by Pamela's gluten-free flour from Amazon six at a time. So I always have some available. For the record, at the moment I am an extremely strict diet and cannot do any of the above. But will go back to that method in a few months.
